Guest contribution: Slow-cooker ribs
This is a recipe from my friend. She is so amazing, because she doesn’t eat meat, but she dutifully prepares it for her husband and two-year-old daughter. It is very hard to properly cook something if you don’t eat it (and thereby taste what you have done to it), but she consistently hits it out of the park. This is an easy meal for her to prepare and her husband absolutely loves it.
1 package ribs (you choice of cut, she used boneless country ribs)
1 bottle of barbeque sauce
1-12 oz. can of Dr. Pepper
Place ribs in crock and slather with 3/4 of bbq sauce and pour in can of Dr. Pepper. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove from crock and place on cookie sheet lined with foil; top with remaining sauce and bake at 350 until the sauce carmelizes (about 20-30 minutes). Serve with your favorite vegetable as a side.
